To renew, members need to submit a complete Certification Renewal Application and ALL support documentation required. Submissions should be submitted online in one PDF to Incomplete renewal submissions will delay the renewal process as applications cannot be approved without the proper documentation. While some members may receive an email notification reminding them that their certification is about to expire, ultimately it is the member’s responsibility to view their NPMA profile and check their certification’s expiration date. It is advisable that members review their profile regularly and renew early to ensure that applications are not submitted late. 

Late renewals are subject to late fees or retest. Certification renewal applications can be submitted up to 120 days after the certification expiration date as long as the individual has been an NPMA member for the last 12 months. If the application is received between 30 and 120 days after the expiration date, a $100 late fee will be imposed. Applications received more than 120 days after the required renewal date will be rejected and the member will be required to retest at the highest level previously obtained or the member will drop to the level below the highest level they did not renew. 

Late renewals or failure to meet all of the renewal requirements may be appealed to the certification CGB Appeals/Disciplinary Committee.
